This is just a notice to all SOSEN members. I want to say Thank you for everything you have done for me. Although I personally am not a registered citizen, in the past I have had friends who were on the registry and friends who were not on the registry. The more I have learned about a registered citizen’s life and how much his/her rights are being scandalously stolen the more I have fought for them. The more I stood up for my friends who were on the registry the more my ‘friends’ who were not on the registry seemed to avoid me. Soon almost all of my family had even turned against me and abandoned me.
After a few very troubling circumstances, and an eviction, a registered citizen that had been a friend for only a short time opened his doors to me. It wasn’t much, but it was a roof over my head and I was in out of the rain. I began to become more involved in different groups that were fighting for registrant’s rights. After a small amount of time I was given the chance to move to a different state by another registered citizen. Then after only a few short months I found I needed to return to my home state because of a serious medical problem my mother was experiencing. Unfortunately I did not have the financial means for the trip. I had just about given up on the chance of ever seeing my mother again when two registered citizen friends of mine stepped up and gave me what I needed for the trip of almost 2,000 miles.That was also right about the same time my membership in SOSEN had just begun.
After the passing of my mother it was necessary for me to move yet again. With no ideas and seemingly no one to turn to I called upon some of of my registered citizen friends for advice. These friends not only comforted me in the loss of my mother but found another place for me to stay for a short time. At the end of that stay two more registrant friends found a nice location for me to live on a limited income.
I have been able to find various good places to live, receive comfort at one of the most grievous times in my life, become more educated and assist in making advancements in a cause I truly believe in. Throughout these experiences I have found who my true friends were and I am now making more friends every time SOSEN gets a new member. Is it any wonder that I can now consider all of you at SOSEN my family? These learning experiences have been wonderful. THANK YOU SOSEN for all you have given me, I only wish I could do as much for you in return. I am going to give it my best shot and continue to fight for the rights of all registered citizens and SOSEN. Once again, thank you.
